    You guys argue. Meanwhile, me and J.W. Jarboe are going to make money with our Lincwelders. Them fancy Idealarcs have fans and other junk I don't need.

    P.S. I have what I think is serial # 2 of the Dialarc, made in 1974, HD726781. The serial # is one higher than the starting serial number of the oldest manual I can find, and Miller says 1974 is the start year.

    There are a lot of Jarboes out in that area of Kansas. I think he did a lot more on cold winter nights than welding.

    Next you are gonna claim that it was used at the factory to weld up the starter cranks on AMC Pacers... just to make us think it is REALLY valuable...

    This machine has been setting in a metal building I know for 10 yrs just setting. I work for the school district here in a maintaince crew. I went and asked the head ag teacher if I could see if it worked and use it in the shop. He told me yes.
    I pulled it apart blew it out and oiled the gears put a number 6 cord on it and the fan came on when I hit the switch so I went pulled some leads of another welder I burned a couple of rods everything went good now to put it to work.
    I only had a little ac machine so was kind of limited on which rods to use but I guess not any more.
    Some day I would like to have a electric welder I have a bobcat 225 so I would like to stay blue is the reason I asked.

    Kpack... We have a Dialarc 250 and a Syncrowave 250. Just had to have an old round top Idealarc 250 to even out the stable. The fan is probably the most unreliable part in there just because fans are what they are and the lube gets a bit sticky. Aside from that, all you have to worry about is grinder dust, dust bunnies, mud dauber wasps, floods, tornadoes and the like.

    Yes see below. Page 3 I think under the "Transformer" column.

    No, you are correct he never said Dialarc, but he asked what did Miller make like it. That's why I said the Dialarc and Idealarc would be the most comparable machines of these older transformer types.
